Overview

Katana—the traditional sword carried by the historic samurai of Japan—is a symbol of honor, precision, and artistry in Japanese culture. Adopting the majestic sword’s name with pride, the Katana series presents guitar amplifiers with smooth, cutting tones honed by generations of dedication and expertise. Born of the development process behind the acclaimed Waza amplifier, these innovative amps embody BOSS’s determined pursuit of the ultimate rock sound. Featuring proprietary circuit designs and meticulous tuning, the Katana series combines traditional craftsmanship and breakthrough functions to produce true next-generation rock amplifiers.

With 100 watts of power and a pair of custom 12-in. speakers, the Katana KTN-100 delivers a commanding range of gig-worthy tones that gracefully slice through any band scenario. The amp also excels for home playing, with a uniquely efficient design and innovative Power Control that provides inspiring sound and response at low volumes. In addition, the Katana KTN-100 includes integrated access to 55 BOSS effects, which are customizable using the free BOSS Tone Studio editor software. Up to 15 different effects can be configured in the amp at one time, enabling you to bring fully prepared tones to the stage in one amp. 

A Refined Amp with Inspiring Tone
Designed for guitarists who are serious about their sound, the Katana KTN-100 offers exceptional tone and touch response for stage playing, recording, and simply practicing at home. The custom 12-in. speakers are driven by a special method developed for the flagship Waza amp that optimizes the speaker and cabinet character. This gives you authoritative punch and cutting presence previously attainable only with high-end amp designs. In combination with the five selectable amp characters, the Katana KTN-100 produces class-defying power and expressiveness to meet any playing situation. 

Five Original Amp Characters, Honed for Rock Playing 
Sharpened to perfection by the BOSS engineering team, the Katana KTN-100’s five amp characters offer everything from organic vintage tones to modern high-gain sounds. Clean is natural and transparent, while Crunch offers satisfying grit and response. Lead has a wide gain range to suit many styles, from fat, stinging blues solos to fluid legato shredding. With DNA inherited from the Waza amp, Brown delivers refined high-gain tone sought after by the world’s greatest rock players. The Acoustic character further enhances the Katana’s versatility, providing optimized tone that makes acoustic-electric guitars sound stunningly natural. 

Leave Your Pedalboard at Home 
With its built-in BOSS effects and recallable Tone Settings, the Katana KTN-100 lets you perform anywhere with just a guitar and amp. Connecting to BOSS Tone Studio via USB provides access to 55 effects that are fully customizable for your needs. Going beyond standard distortion, delay, and reverb, the selection also includes powerful tone-shapers like pitch shifting, ring mod, slicer, and more. You can load 15 different effects in the amp at one time and use up to three simultaneously. Four Tone Settings let you store custom amp and effects setups for instant recall, and you can always jump to the current panel settings at the touch of a button. It’s also possible to connect optional footswitches and expression pedals for hands-free control on the gig. 

Grab-and-Go Operation
While the Katana KTN-100 includes many advanced features, it’s amazingly simple to operate. Dedicated knobs for multiple gain stages, three-band EQ, and presence allow you to quickly dial in your tone by ear, just as you would with a standard tube amp. Essential effects parameters are adjusted with a simple knob twist, and memories can be stored with a brief button hold. The Power Control is great for throttling back the volume for small stages and home playing, and also includes a Standby setting that mutes the sound for switching guitars or taking breaks. And by flipping out the integrated tilt stand, you can easily angle the amp back for better sound projection. 

BOSS Tone Central
At the BOSS Tone Central website, you’ll find numerous free amp and effects setups for the Katana series. Created by pro guitarists, these setups provide ready-to-play sounds for various music styles, and also make great starting points for building your own sounds. They load into the memories in a Katana amp via the BOSS Tone Studio editor software, which is also available at the site. In addition to Katana effects selection and customization, BOSS Tone Studio gives you a convenient way to organize all your Katana setups for different gigs, recordings, and practice sessions.

Sounds amazing!

By John Ritchens

from Lapeer, MI

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Several efx, sounds amazing.

Cons

    Best Uses

    • Small gigs and even to play in Arenas!

    Comments about Boss Katana KTN-100/2x12 100 W 2x12" Guitar Amplifier:

    I am a professional musician and a very picky person about the way I sound (cables, efx, chips inside of pedals...). I was looking for an amp that I could use at open mics and rehearsals, then I saw that Boss was about to release the Katana amp. I decided to pre-order mine because of the reviews I watched on Youtube. I got really amazed and surprised by this AMP! It sounds amazing! And YES, you can even play Arenas with this amp! You can use it with your electric and acoustic guitar. I am not kidding! You should check this amp out! The amp is so amazing that I even decided to add a pro coverage!

    Definitely smokes the competition

    By Chris

    from Brentwood, N California

    Comments about Boss Katana KTN-100/2x12 100 W 2x12" Guitar Amplifier:

    I have tried Blackstar ID, Marshall code(Junk), line6(Junk). I have the katana 100 2-12 and it smokes the competition. Like any of these amplifiers you definitely need to spend a little time tweaking the controls but definitely a Great sounding amplifier with effects built-in. I am a tube amp connoisseur, but this is definitely a nice addition to my gear as I can plug headphones in and not bother my family, or change the power settings to go from a half watt to 50 to 100 watts. Very good sounding, lightweight and people out there that play tube amps understand how they have a feel that solid-state amps can't duplicate, but this katana definitely get you in the ballpark which was very important to me. Definitely a cool amp.

    Great amp!!! Very loud!!! Beautiful clean tone!!! Nice price!!!
    Awesome distorted tones!!! Plenty of punch!!! I would give this amp a 4.5 stars rating! Only concern is I like a little more saturation in the distortion! But pedals solve that!!!!
